Our teams undertake large field studies in a number of global settings looking at the effect of health and social factors on early child development (malaria in pregnancy, nutrition, prematurity, HIV exposure). Our overarching research interests are in the assessment of neurodevelopmental and neurobehavioral outcomes in children in global settings and in understanding how this can be done well, at scale and with meaning, and linked with interventions which can be provided in low income settings.
Liverpool International Child Neurodevelopment and Disabilities Group
Our group is focussed on improving outcomes for children's development and for children with disabilities in settings of adversity. This is particularly vital in a global environment where the focus for child health is transitioning away from just looking at child survival, towards how well children are thriving and what their quality of life is like.
